Hello I had an hCG inj 5000 17 may 2014. so when to perform home pregnancy test?

Unclear questions: HCG injection will not result in pregnancy. In fact HCG injections are not good for any thing other than lightening your wallet. The injection you had in 2014, is no longer an issue. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Read more

BY the time your hCG level is high enough to detect in a home pregnancy test how many weeks pregnant will you be?

BY the time your hCG level is high enough to detect in a home pregnancy test how many weeks pregnant will you be?

Ralph881: Believe it or not, home pregnancy tests are positive at very low HCG levels in the first 2-3 weeks of pregnancy and sometimes even earlier. The key is performing the test on the first urine after a night's sleep so it is concentrated and not dilute and performing the test exactly as instructed Read more

I took an hCG booster of 250 units (i believe that is the correct measurement. Small amt) when can I take a home pregnancy test?

I took an hCG booster of 250 units (i believe that is the correct measurement. Small amt) when can I take a home pregnancy test?

About 2 -12 days.: From what I know about this, you're supposed to ovulate about 36 hours after you take gthis with a concomitant rise in temperature. If you engage in intercourse, etc. You should first take your pregnancy test about 2-10 days after this, especially if you don't have your period. If the result is not clear you can also take the test after that. Read more

I took hCG drops about a month ago, stopped about 15 days later. Yesterday I took a home pregnancy test and it came back positive. Could it be false?

I took hCG drops about a month ago, stopped about 15 days later. Yesterday I took a home pregnancy test and it came back positive. Could it be false?

Probably not: The drops were so long ago, and there is not great absorption anyway (ie. Waste of money) that it would not cause the pregnancy test to be positive. I suggest you follow up with your GYN. Read more

Last sex 5.05. On 8.06 I took blood test hCG beta hormon level 7, 6. After seven days I made home pregnancy test it was negative. I'm I pregnant?

Last sex 5.05. On 8.06 I took blood test hCG beta hormon level 7, 6. After seven days I made home pregnancy test it was negative. I'm I pregnant?

Don't think so.: The beta HCG level of 7 is very low- if a urine pregnancy test was negative 7 days later then it sounds like your hormone levels declined after the 8.06 test -instead of increasing, as they should have with a normally progressing pregnancy. There is a small chance of getting a false negative home pregnancy test and you could check it again or get another beta check to be sure. But most likely not. Read more

Hard to say: Your question illustrates why it's usually better to wait after a miscarriage to have a regular period before getting pregnant again. Time will tell. There can still be HCG present from your 10 week pregnancy. If the HCG is rising, that would suggest a new pregnancy. Read more

If you have white milky discharge would you have enough hCG to test positive on an at home pregnancy test?

If you have white milky discharge would you have enough hCG to test positive on an at home pregnancy test?

Unrelated to each: Other. Milky white discharge and HCG are not related to each other. If you are 4-5 days past the due date for your period, you may do a home pregnancy test, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the package carefully. Read more

I took two home pregnancy test both came out positive but one line is darker than the other does that mean something about my hCG levels im worried because I had a misscariage at five weeks in may?

HCG level: The two lines need not be of the same intensity as these are due to different reagents and only one is due to hcg. If the matter is of such concern, you may consult your doctor for an HCG level keeping in mind that there is a wide variation in normal levels. See this site for more info on HCG levels. Http://www.

Can hCG be produced the day after intercourse? Would a urine home pregnancy test detect pregnancy this soon? If not, how soon?

Can hCG be produced the day after intercourse? Would a urine home pregnancy test detect pregnancy this soon? If not, how soon?

Pregnancy tests: Depends on the test. Many within the first two weeks. Most doctors recommend you wait until the first day of your missed period since the HCG has to build up. Urine tests are 97% accurate. Blood tests pick it up sooner and are more accurate. Read more

If after 11DPT of 3dt embryos the hCG levels are high enough for detection can a home pregnancy test detect it accurately already on 11DPT?

If after 11DPT of 3dt embryos the hCG levels are high enough for detection can a home pregnancy test detect it accurately already on 11DPT?

See below: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. Read more

What causes hCG to not register on a home pregnancy test. 7-8 weeks since last period. Is it common? Repeat negative home test.

Not pregnant: Much more likely that this is a menstrual irregularity rather than a pregnancy. Most pregnancy tests are positive 2 weeks after conception or about 4 weeks after a previous period. Read more
